Maria Rakhmaninova (Tbilisi)

Am 8. Dezember 2022 heißen wir gemeinsam mit dem Leibniz-WissenschaftsCampus (LWC) Maria Rakhmaninova in unserem Regensburger Forschungskolloquium willkommen. Sie wird einen Vortrag zum Thema "Left Feminism in Russia 2010-2022: Between Gender Studies and Activism" halten. Der Vortrag findet in englischer Sprache statt.


The early 2010s in Russia were marked by new aspirations and milestones in the development of feminism. This was due, on the one hand, to the intensive and diverse reception of foreign sources on gender theory, and, on the other, to the emergence and rapid intensification of new authoritarian tendencies in Russian social and economic policy. Among other currents, the left wing of feminism deserves special attention: socialist feminism, Marxist (Trotskyist) feminism, and anarcho-feminism. The talk examines the main features, peculiarities and problems of this spectrum of feminist thought and practice and attempts to outline their path and current state.
